Our watertight hatches are produced to your specific requirements and can fit flush with the deck or be raised above deck High quality Watertight Hatches from LMS.


Access may be required to a watertight compartment on a ship or vessel after a hull breach, where the compartment has been flooded. Watertight hatches are therefore specifically designed to access compartments within a ship which are watertight.

This does not only necessarily apply to compartments within a shipping vessel - it can also include any marine environment where a watertight hatch solution is required. Offshore drilling platforms, containers and other marine structures often have the need for watertight hatches.

Lifting & Marine Services Ltd produce watertight hatches which are manufactured to your exact requirements. We supply units which are available in steel, aluminium and stainless and are delivered as a self-contained unit. The hatches can either be supplied to fit flush or raised above deck onto a raised coaming.
